Sorry for the confusion, I was in a hurry when I was writing this (packing for Paris...as a female, I think that says it all ;)), and have been in Paris with little reliable internet.  


Anyways, Barca is correct, you can assume the instantaneous flipping is distinguishable from leaving the lights on or off, and the prisoners can see a little ways down the hall from their cells so that they'll have a little prior warning to when a guard is coming.  The idea is to minimize the chain of actions so that they run a smaller risk of being caught by a guard.

Since the prisoners doesn't appear to be around,
1. What is the beginning states of the lamps.
2. Can I use off/on then on/off as a signal?
3. How many times can they act a day? (it says they are shuffled each day)

3.No limit, just the starting configuration is unknown.

How about this one.


Spoiler for With only F and T to avoid disambiguity


Actually the flushing of toilets is not directional, lol, so you can save a few actions by doing B,C, and D rather than A, B, and C, but otherwise, great job.   :thumbsup:


I did some of these schemes to see if they work and my neighbors started answering back.  ;).
So I'm turn in spectator for the nonce, to see how it turns out.


:lol: You know, if your neighbors are anything like these inmates, you might want to call the Justice League...speaking of which...;P


Spoiler for Attempt with 12 singals


Nice idea, but I think you're going to run into the distingishability issue discussed previously.
